Today, 16 December 2011, is the first day of Bradley Manning’s pre-trial hearing. This will be held against the backdrop of President Barack Obama having already declared Manning guilty without any judicial process. Bradley Manning has also been subjected to extra-judicial punishment which amounted to torture during his 18 month detention.
WISE Up for Bradley Manning has been campaigning for over a year for all charges against Bradley Manning to be dropped and for his release. Today, supporters put up two banners at the busy Plas Coch roundabout in Wrexham, Wales, during the morning rush hour: ‘FREE BRADLEY MANNING’ and ‘END THE WARS!’ along with a rainbow peace flag. Bradley Manning’s mother is from Pembrokeshire and still lives in Wales along with other of his relatives.
